  • Are you willing to make quick decisions as a group leader without letting the stress of the situation take over your duties? 
  • Are you able to evaluate emotional and social situations? Determining the needs of others even when they aren’t able to share what they need at that time?

  • Are you excited to grow in your profession as a guide/faculty? Are you willing to accept feedback and constructive criticism? 
  • Are you an opportunist? Do you accept challenges and view them as opportunities? 
  • Are you just as comfortable in a sleeping bag and cot on the side of a river as you are in a 5 star hotel in the Dolomites?
